At Our Wits’ End: Why We’re Becoming Less Intelligent and What it Means for the Future (Societas) “We are becoming less intelligent. This is the shocking yet fascinating message of At Our Wits’ End. The authors take us on a journey through the growing body of evidence that we are significantly less intelligent now than we were a hundred years ago. The research proving this is, at once, profoundly thought-provoking, highly controversial, and it’s currently only read by academics. But the authors are passionate that it cannot remain ensconced in the ivory tower any longer. With At Our Wits’ End, they present the first ever popular scientific book on this crucially important issue. They prove that intelligence — which is strongly genetic — was increasing up until the breakthrough of the Industrial Revolution, because we were subject to the rigors of Darwinian Selection, meaning that lots of surviving children was the preserve of the cleverest. But since then, they show, intelligence has gone into rapid decline, because large families are increasingly the preserve of the least intelligent. The book explores how this change has occurred and, crucially, what its consequences will be for the future. Can we find a way of reversing the decline of our IQ? Or will we witness the collapse of civilization and the rise of a new Dark Age?”

Attorney General William Barr told lawmakers today that he will be looking to the “genesis” of the the FBI’s counterintelligence investigation into the “Russia/Trump” conspiracy theory, saying, “I think spying on a political campaign is a big deal.” “In the context of a morning news report Barr was assembling a team to investigate the origins of the investigation into possible Russian interference in the 2016 election, Sen. Jeanne Shaheen asked Barr, during his testimony before a Senate committee, “Why you felt the need to form that kind of a team and what you intend to be the scope of their investigation?”

“Barr dodged, noting he had said during his confirmation hearing he would review the “genesis and conduct” of intel work directed at Trump’s campaign.

“When Shaheen persisted, Barr acknowledged he had no actual evidence, but had “concerns.”

“Barr acknowledged a lot has already been investigated, by the inspector general at the department.

“I’m not suggesting those rules were violated but it is important to look at that,” Barr insisted.

“So you’re not suggesting spying occurred?” Shaheen pressed.

“I think spying did occur,” Barr replied
